Re: FS - UK RHD M635CSi #379

I like the colour, different.

Have to wonder what people will think in 30 years regarding some of the new M4 that people choose to have in the lime greens or 'discharge' yellow :D

Re: M635 no spark - so confused, help!

Mine was intermittent no start too, did it for years before i fixed it - mechanic couldnt resolve it either.

Check the OBC relay box i described, one under your P2 dash.

Re: FS - UK RHD M635CSi #226 or #257???

I am no expert admittedly, can't see what could be done with that car .. at that mileage the engine must be tired.. the body is bent and the interior is battered.

Unless the values of the M's go up into late 10's of thousands it would never be economical to repair such a car surely?

WTB: Fan (blower) control circuit board

My blower runs nothing or full, changed the transistor by motor and also the one on the circuit board behind the variable dial in dash - no luck.

Anyone have a spare board hidden away that they would part with?

Re: M635 no spark - so confused, help!

I had issues with my 6 related to the OBC stopping the main relay. On occassion would turn over but no spark... Found the issue in the end after much pain. There is a 'relay' box in the passenger side dash which is linked to the OBC, its part of the security system. If the OBC code is set then the O...

Re: M635 Diff mount

Hi Don, Yes design looks similiar i.e. metal plate bonded to the rubber. 2 main reasons i needed this rather than the 'normal' part. 1) was the height as you have asked about, this part has 51mm where as the height of the 'usual' part numbers was about 10-15mm less, so the diff would have been neare...

Re: M635 Diff mount

Rob, nothing better than getting to the bottom of mystery part numbers and what fits 8) So the saga concludes - part number 33171125290 is as below, costs £139 inc VAT and is the same as is fitted to my M6: IMAG1955.jpg So now all i need is a dry day without ice on the ground then it can be fitted.

So, the saga continues. On the left we have part number 33171129784 at around £50 inc VAT On the right we have part number 33171130900 at around £270 inc VAT (yep, eye watering). IMAG1949.jpg As you can see, they would 100% be interchangeable and i cant see how the £270 is superior apart from a fake...

Changed oil + filter, changed power steering fluid and filter, took door card off drivers and adjusted window ... then spent 2 hours polishing the wheels.

Re: No Start - During Restoration

I am not the most technical here but do know mine won't start unless my battery is in good condition. If you are seeing less than 12v then i would charge the battery properly or stick a power pack on it before doing anything else.

Re: Need to buy a battery. Opinions?

Well the wonder that is 'ProBat' worked at least once.. started like a dream today.

For £45 cant go too far wrong, about half the price of a proper brand at the local car shop or Halfords.

Brucey, i am sure you will love yours too - the future is Probat.

Ron nailed it. Back in from the garden, chased inside by the rain / sleet in need of a cup of tea and warmth. The M635CSI differential mount is different than the mount for M535 / 635.. so if anyone is thinking of buying a £42 instead of a £226 mount for their M635 then dont :wink: The mount that ma...
